Based on the haunting, low pitched booming call of the kākāpō, the world’s largest parrot, this work celebrates the virtual rebirth of this magnificent bird from near extinction through the work of the Department of Conservation in New Zealand.

Recorded by Radio New Zealand Concert, 6 October 2002.
